Animal Crossing New Horizons is available today on Nintendo Switch but it seems that some hackers have managed to access some encrypted code files through a tool distributed then online. Nintendo has already rushed to cover a patch that fixes some security holes.
Update 1.1.0 was published yesterday (one day before the launch of the game) with the aim of countering hackers, increasing the security of the protection system and closing those exploits that allowed hackers to “browse” through the Animal Crossing New Horizons source code files.
According to SciresM, Nintendo has implemented new security measures and those who will play Animal Crossing New Horizons with a hacked or modified copy will face the ban, as the new system checks the authenticity of the bailouts.
